CHICAGO - It must be a sign of spring. A piping plover has been spotted at Rainbow Beach on Chicago's South Side.
The tiny bird was spotted Tuesday by a member of the Chicago Piping Plovers. The environmentalist group has been advocating and caring for Monty and Rose — a pair of endangered birds that nest at Montrose beach.
However, the Rainbow Beach bird is a newcomer. Bird enthusiasts hope the bird will decide to mate and nest locally.
